Botafogo RJ will meet Atletico Mineiro in the Campeonato Brasileiro on Sunday.
Botafogo RJsuffered a 0-2 away loss at the hands of Cuiaba in their latest League fixture. In last 5 rounds, they have 2 wins but 3 losses, and they had only won 1 of their last 4 home League matches but lost 3.
Atletico Mineiro tied Sao Paulo with a goalless draw in their last home game, which makes them fail to get their straight 4th win in recent fixture. The distance between Botafogo and the relegation zone has now narrowed to only three points. And their away forms are not bad, since they had only lost 1 of their last 5 away League matches.
Atletico Mineiro took upper hand in past 10 meetings against Botafogo RJ, and the odds are in favor of them. So my prediction is Atletico Mineiro to win.
1X2 Pick: 2
